Environment Working Party, April 2nd

This band of positive villagers has continued to work on the Well-house Meadow. We have secured all 20 fruit trees with rabbit guards, stakes and membranes to prevent weeds. In the autumn we hope to have a permanent sign made so that villagers can identify all the trees, and maybe a new seat.  Meanwhile we have spent 4 sessions cutting the ivy on the Tudor wall, and you can now see our beautiful and historic wall in all its glory.

Next Environment Working Party

Sunday the 12th March is our next environment working Party.  I will be there from 1.30.
Last time we dug in 4 new fruit trees and completed putting in stakes and weed suppressant mats around the trees.  Yesterday they were all looking good.  I hope to see as many of you as can make it on Sunday; we aim to complete the careful removal of Ivy from the Tudor wall so that we can move on to other sites in the village.

Area Commanders Update – For The Record

Message sent by
James Sutherland (Police, Chief Inspector, South Cambridgeshire)

Last week we held our round of neighbourhood panel meetings and as usual there was good discussion around local policing and setting of our priorities.  Some of this was reported in the local media including the statement: “Villages are a low priority for policing in Cambridgeshire due to a lack of resources, says a chief inspector for South Cambridgeshire.”
Whilst I appreciate the importance of the press and their work in publicising crime and holding the police to account,  I also think that it is important to clarify for the record that I absolutely did not say that (nor is it attributed as a direct quote) and that is decidedly not my position.  (All other quotes are accurate) Read more
